King Athelstan

Masonic Order of Athelstan

The Masonic Order of Athelstan (MOA) takes its ceremony from the time the Anglo-Saxon King Athelstan, who claimed to the first king of all the English, asked his half-brother Prince Edwin to call the practicing Master Masons to a general assembly at York, in the year 926.  King Athelstan had for some time been concerned about the poor practices of the operative Masons and had decide to lay down certain standards which eventually became known as the Old Charges.
